A 33-year-old suspect is expected to appear in court for the murder of his 28-year-old girlfriend.

According to the police, he allegedly entered her house and, as she was there alone, shot her in the upper body, fleeing the scene afterwards.
“The woman passed away at the scene. The suspect then ran away and a murder case was registered at Elliotdale Police Station,” Captain Jackson Manatha, Elliotdale police spokesperson confirmed.
He is expected to appear in court on Monday.
